Click on the search button and type in rewiring or Sakonnet rewiring. You will get plenty of good info. That's what I did when I put lights on my 1966 Sakonnet.

I do not believe there was anything unusual about the navigation lighting or its wiring on a SAKONNET 17. The wiring from the sidelights at the bow was run inside the hull and may no longer be working. Repair of this is explained in the FAQ on Boston Whalers. See:

Control of the lighting was usually accomplished with a switch mounted at the console. The rigging tunnel was used to route cables between the console and the transom.

Details of the electrical connections are trivial. You connect the lights to the battery via a switch and fuse located in the positive lead. If you desire independent control of the sidelights and the white all-around light, you can use two switches or use a three-position switch. Ship chandleries carry small switches designed specifically for control of navigation lighting.
